celebrating clover day

as josephine is 1/4+ irish, it seemed only appropriate that we do a little celebrating of st. patrick’s day (known around here as clover day).  so we colored shamrocks with all the green coloring implements we could find and hung them in the window.  and then we put on green clothes and invited some friends over for brunch.

she drew this scribble and then pointed out that it looks like a G.

eli was very good-natured about letting josephine and sydney watch his diaper change.

josephine holding jesse. i told her to “hold his head,” meaning she should support it with her bottom arm. she did this instead.

brothers:

post-brunch and post-nap, josephine tried out her new headphones.  we got them for her to use on an upcoming plane trip, but when she happily put them on and listened to (who else?) caspar babypants for 45 minutes while ned and i sat next to her and read our respective books and the house was silent…  well, it’s going to be hard not to pull them out every once in a while.

    Christopher loves headphones too. i’m not sure why. usually they’re attached to a DVD of Elmo, of course, but…

    put on the curious george cd… just imagine how long she would sit quietly! “play george goes to the hospital again?”

    Headphones were about the only way my mom could get my little brother to take a nap when he was a toddler. We have this great picture of him sitting in an armchair fast asleep with a Walkman when he was about two years old.
